MS has record-low jobless rate

With the exception of one month when it was equal in October 2014, Indiana's unemployment rate has been below the USA rate for more than four years. In February, the labor force expanded by 3,950 after declining for the previous four months.

Virginia's jobless rate remained below the national rate, which was unchanged in February at 4.1 percent.

Trade, Transportation and Utilities added 1,700 (+0.3%) jobs over the month.

The leisure and hospitality sector increased by 200 jobs from January 2018 to February 2018, a 0.1 percent gain.

The office of Gov. Kay Ivey on Friday announced that Alabama's preliminary, seasonally adjusted February unemployment rate held steady at 3.7 percent, well below February 2017's rate of 5.3 percent.

Alaska's seasonally adjusted unemployment rate remained at 7.3 percent in February. "Last year had the weakest job growth of any year since the end of the Great Recession".

The state Employment Development Department issued unadjusted figures for San Diego County which varied slightly from Reaser's calculations after adjusting for seasonal factors. The numbers signal frustrating times for employers looking to fill skilled-job positions and good times for workers who can expect rising wages and salaries in certain areas. The monthly gain follows a downward revision in January in which 2,400 jobs were pared.

Ohio's unemployment rate is at its lowest in almost 17 years.

Zeller said job growth this year hasn't been enough to offset 2017's dismal employment data. This sector has declined 300 jobs or 1.3 percent since February 2017.

By design, the nation's jobs report offers more detailed information than that of OH and most states.

"We have maintained a wage and salary employment count of over two million for eleven months in a row now", said Labor Secretary Fitzgerald Washington.

"Across the entire north central region the numbers are quite low making it rather hard for employers to find people to hire", Lezcano said. If those people come back into the labor force, the rate could rise if job growth is not sufficient to accommodate those people. "Nonfarm employers added 11,500 positions compared with the prior month". Solana Beach had the lowest at 1.4 percent.
